Parent–Teacher Partnerships – Improving Student Achievement

More than ever before, schools and teachers need parent and community support.

Thirty years of research clearly shows that parent and community involvement in schools improves student achievement. To reach their potential, students need parents and the community to take an active role in their education.

Schools are working hard to provide a high quality education for every child. But they can't do it alone. Parent and community involvement is critical to creating great schools.

There are many ways community groups, parents, and other adults who play an important role in a child's life, can be involved with children's education at home, at school, and in the community.

Talk to the teachers and PTA at your neighborhood school to find out how you can help.
